[1] This book is mostly an historical review of observed price cycles in the commodities discussed, with some extrapolated predictions; but in a brief theoretical section of the book, the author links these cycles causally to the Jupiter and sun spot cycles, while postulating possible influences of Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. It is therefore one of the earliest sources on financial astrology theory, although sketchy

[2] The original edition is dated to 1875

[3] COPAC records give 1935

[4] Declared first published by St. Martin’s Press Inc., USA, 1980. The present volume would appear to be the first British edition.

[5] The contents are identical to those of Vol. 1 No. 2 of the periodical ‘Horoscope Screen Album’, dated June 1931 (q. v. above), suggesting that this is just a standalone reissue of of that issue as a separate publication.

[6] Presumed 1931 or soon after

[6a] Internal references to Meyer’s ‘A Handbook for the Humanistic Astrologer’ and Busteed’s ‘Phases of the Moon’ place the date no earlier than 1974. The other books referenced predate this.

[6b] Internal reference to Meyer’s ‘A Handbook for the Humanistic Astrologer’ places the date no earlier than 1974. The other books (and records) referred to in the text range in date from 1970-1973

[6c] Internal reference to Joseph Campbell’s ‘Hero With a Thousand Faces’ places the date no earlier than 1972

[6d] Reference to a ‘recent lecture’ delivered by Dane Rudhyar in December 1974 suggests 1975 as an accurate date for this document

[7] Estimated 2000s

[8] Lacking No. 3. The series of fifteen publications collectively is the most basic tier of three series of publications in the full tiered course

[9] The author is described on the front cover as co-founder and minister of the Unicorn Ashram, which appears to be a church in Oceanside

[10] A Jungian astrological work, not just general mythology

[11] The contents of this volume, and the front cover, appear to have been produced by photocopying the equivalent pages on another bound copy, bearing facsimile hole-punched marks on the front cover and many pages. But whether this is how the author published at least one batch of his books, or whether copy might be an unauthorised duplicate, is not clear. No library records or other Internet references to the work could be found at the time of writing, and it is suspected of having been produced in very small quantities

[12] Part of the glossary at the back of the volume

[13] Text is continuous; the error is in the pagination

[14] A collection of eight essays on Pico-related themes by different scholars, including Ornella Pompeo Faracovi, Stefano Caroti, and Marco Bertozzi

[15] The original edition is said to have been published in 1985 by Cappelli of Bologna.

[16] This volume is divided into four themed ‘books’: Book I – Techniques of Uranian Astrology (pp. 1-76); Book II – The Annual Horoscope (pp. 77-89); Book III – Health, Astrology and the Planetary Picture (pp. 91-133); and Book IV – Horary AStrology (pp. 135-149)
